“We’ve added real strength to our team too - both on the Account Management side and in terms of our creative and production capabilities - increasing our headcount to 30, including our London-based Digital team.”

“The future is looking incredibly bright as we continue to support an extended and varied portfolio of brands with a strengthened team of talent here at the Agency.”
